5 Star South Australian Tour
"Glen is friendly, deeply knowledgeable and a wonderful guide. He sees things in the landscape I wouldn't have picked up on myself (from the smallest of migratory birds to the emus making their way up the sandhill). Glen also provided an understanding of the everchanging nature of the Coorong as part of a larger ecosystem."
